I weave large scale wall hangings. My work has been inspired by: travel, works of art, my desire for peace in the world in a time of war: family and friends, as well as the many beautiful colors and textiles that surround me like the magnificent work with metal done by the African artist El Anatsui. Darwin’s Gardin came from a trip to a Charles Darwin Exhibit at the Bronx Botanic Gardens.
I have woven all my work on a standing loom in Bellas Artes, The Fine Arts School in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I have been weaving in Mexico for over twenty-five years and have had solo shows and participated in group shows in Mexico, New York City and Canada.
My work is on permanent display at the City College, City University of New York and at York College (CUNY). It is on long term loan at the NYC Career Center in Washington Heights and at the New York Public Library.
A grant from the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance helped me buy a loom and to start weaving in New York City. I look forward to reaching a wide audience by exhibiting my work in many different venues.
